Online Classes VS Realtime Classes

March 11, 2008 12:23pm CST
Most of us have been attending Realtime Classes throughout our life and some have been attending Online Virtual Classes to obtain their certificate, diploma, degree, Masters or even some skill trainings. I personally think that Realtime classes are much effective as you are able to communicate face to face and get to know how others react from head to toe. What is your opinion on this?

I like Realtime Classes because you can interact with your professor on point when you have questions about the lesson. I learn better when I see and hear the professor. Reading online wears me out, especially when it is for school. Skills are better learned when you do it hands on.

I think that real time classes are much effective too. As we get to socialize with others and exchange our knowledge other than the subject which we are studying. Other than that, we get to see the person and the instructor which helps to build a rapport and get to understand each other better which will unconciously help you to understand the class better when the instructor is teaching as you already get to know the way the instructor communicates and talk.

I am sure real time classes are more effective but unfortunately not many people has time for those classes. AS you seen many people have to work, study take care of their families and all in ones, so that's why they make those online classes what i think is very good idea for those who cannot commute.

I prefer Realtime Classes to Online Classes since Realtime classes has its very benefits and advantages. I am a fast learner. I could learn through reading, listening, or even through experience. And, in the classrooms, all of these are combined, so, I would learn rather effectively. But, when I chose Online Classes, I'll just learn through reading or listening but it is very hard to get to the application thing that I am aiming for.
